ShotTracker Launches "Klay Thompson Preseason 3,000" Shooting Challenge

Wearable Basketball Tech Company Works With Klay Thompson and Other Basketball Experts to Offer One-of-a-Kind Training Experience

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2015) - ShotTracker, the wearable tech for basketball that automatically tracks shot attempts, makes and misses, announces today the launch of the Klay Thompson Preseason 3,000 (KT3000), a free training program featuring All-Star shooting guard Klay Thompson, elite trainer, Charlie Torres and shooting expert, Collin Castellaw. With the youth basketball season ramping up in November, ShotTracker and Thompson are challenging players everywhere to shoot 3,000 shots within three weeks to ensure they are ready for the season. The program kicks off Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST with a live, online video hangout featuring Thompson.

"The Klay Thompson Preseason 3,000 uses ShotTracker's advanced technology to bring a professional basketball experience to players everywhere," said Davyeon Ross, COO of ShotTracker. "It's a chance to work with the very best to improve your shot, and also see how you stack up against others going into the season."

Participants will have the opportunity to ask for Thompson's advice and learn how he gets ready for the season during the livestream KT3000 kickoff. Players can hit their 3,000 shot goal by completing any combination of shoot around drills and structured workouts in the ShotTracker Player App. Each week will feature a KT3000 expert on a live online hangout, in addition to personalized shout outs, flash challenges and the release of 70 new drills on the ShotTracker platform. Charlie Torres is scheduled to host on Nov. 8 and Collin Castellaw is scheduled to host on Nov. 15.

"Solid preseason training is important for a strong start to the regular season, and ShotTracker makes it possible for everyone to do an elite program," said Klay Thompson. "I'm looking forward to completing the challenge and sharing my experience with everyone who participates."

The challenge ends Nov. 22, and participants are invited to attend the live, online awards ceremony to hear who won in a series of categories. The program is free, and while it is not required to own a ShotTracker to participate, the device upgrades the player's challenge experience and automatically validates results, making players eligible for Thompson's leaderboard and prizes. Those who complete the KT3000 with a ShotTracker device will receive a free t-shirt.

To sign up for the Klay Thompson Preseason 3,000, visit here or sign up through the ShotTracker app. Participation is free for everyone, but it does require access to an iOS or Android enabled mobile device or tablet. ShotTracker wearable tech can be purchased at www.ShotTracker.com.
